Classique Dame 9068
Exclusively for women
The Watch Quote™ - November 4th, 2014
Breguet has from its beginnings taken on the task of designing timepieces exclusively for women. The company takes pride in having had a number of prominent women among its clients, including Marie-Antoinette and Caroline Murat, queen of Naples. One of the secrets of its success with women is that it creates real mechanical movements, sometimes with exceptional complications for its female clients, instead of just adding gemstones to an existing man’s model.
Breguet very soon made women equal to men in terms of watchmaking with a judicious combination of horological know-how and graceful styling. Thus watchmaking complications designed for women, thin cases with clean dials and a refined setting of gemstones are to be expected in the brand’s collections.
The Classique Dame 9068 model perfectly matches this ideal. This particularly slim watch shows the hours, minutes and seconds as well as the dates in an aperture – a function popular with women. Once again, the heart of this watch is a mechanical movement with a silicon balance spring. This is Breguet’s way of demonstrating that it gives women the benefit of the latest innovations in their watches. Taste and charm come naturally into play on an uncluttered, engine-turned dial, while the bezel and lugs are set with brilliant-cut diamonds. With its open-tipped Breguet hands in blued steel, welded lugs, fine fluting on the caseband, unique number and secret signature, this model is unmistakably a Breguet classic.
